The Only Snow I've Seen This Season

For December, I threw my jelly roll/strippy resolutions to the wind and went over to the dark side. I hit up Fat Quarter Shop's holiday sale, ordered a LOAD of Cuzco yardage by Kate Spain, and made my own layer cake. Well, the equivalent of 2 layer cakes actually.

cuzco yardage ftw!

You see, I used almost all my spare time this month making a KING-sized quilt top to go on my sister-in-law's bed. In between all the nuttiness that goes along with the holiday season - traveling to/from get-togethers, holiday gift shopping, and dealing with the fallout credit card fraud (2 rounds of it to be exact) that goes along with aforementioned holiday gift shopping - I was stealing some time in the sewing room piecing my little heart out.

Here's a sneak peek of the top. I used Natalia's tutorial for Verna's Quilt (minus the flower applique). I love the oversized snowball blocks - they're perfect for showcasing large-scale prints. Hopefully, I'll have some pictures of the finished quilt to show soon! We're meeting up with the in-laws sometime in January to exchange gifts, so I still have a bit of breathing room to finish the quilting.


Who snuck over to their sewing machines this month to work on a strippy (or not) project? Link up below! The party will rage on until January 7th around 11pm.



  1. Two rounds of fraud? I'm so nervous about that.
    Happy new Year Megan. Look forward to seeing what you do in 2013 ; )

  2. Happy New Year!
    I love Cuzco by Kate Spain too. Such a beautiful line.

  3. I didn't do any strippy projects in December - did a bunch of others, though! Your snowball quilt is gorgeous, by the way!

  4. I *love* those fabric choices, and that you chose a large block to really show them off!
